Winter Olympics
« on: 08:57:19, 25/02/18 »
Do you think our sportsmen and women are worth the 30 million funding ? Really?
It seems to me just a nice winter holiday having fun.
How much training can they do,giving our climate, Not counting the gym.
One team were told by the committee,that funds had run out and they wouldn't be going.
They did an appeal on the internet,hoping for 30k. I think they got double that.
Politicians and nappies must be changed often,and for the same reason

There's a lot of sponsorship money goes into it, TV etc.
All that's necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

I stopped giving a rat's ass about our Olympians the moment they started masquerading under the banner of 'Team GB' instead of Great Britain, the nation they should be proud to represent. It sounds a little bit like an advertising agency or a firm of public relations consultants, but whatever it sounds like they can shove it where the sun don't shine.


If they're too embarrassed to speak the very name of our country then they have no right to expect its people to support them. Perhaps they shouldn't be living here at all?
